To paint a picture, to write a story or compose a song is an incarnational activity. The artist is a servant who is willing to be a birth giver.
I believe that each work of art, whether it is a work of great genius, or something very small comes to the artist and says: “Here I am. Enflesh me. Give birth to me.” And the artist says “My soul doth magnifies the Lord” and willingly becomes the bearer of the work, or refuses.
We lose the ability to see angels as we grow older and that is a tragic loss.”
Walking on water by Madeleine L’Engle
